I've got a similar setup on OS X, i.e. no sbcl. I get to this point...
After performing the installation steps above, M-- M-x slime RET R RET should start swank. You will be prompted to accept a version mismatch – simply accept – then the SLIME REPL should start up, giving a prompt. Enjoy!
But, I get no prompt....
So, then I tried M-x slime-connect
and now I do see a prompt, but I can't figure out how to send something to the prompt
from a .R file. If I launch help.start(), then it looks at the host and port that I accepted
after slime-connect, but it doesn't seem to be working. What am I missing?

I've tried your instructions on a machine without SBCL and I am getting:
Polling "/tmp/slime.29661".. (Abort with `M-x
slime-abort-connection'.) [3 times]
Connecting to Swank on port 4005..
Versions differ: 2011-12-10 (slime) vs. nil (swank). Continue? (y or n)
error in process filter: or: Can't find suitable coding-system
error in process filter: Can't find suitable coding-system
PS: my slime setup:
(setq slime-net-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
(slime-setup '(slime-asdf slime-repl slime-scratch slime-presentations
'((R ("R" "--no-save" "--max-vsize=4096M")
:init (lambda (port-filename coding-system)
keep.source=TRUE, chdir=TRUE)\nstartSwank('%s')\n" port-filename)))))
